Beautiful Bizarre curated exhibition “Serendipity” @ Haven Gallery

The Serendipity exhibition, is Beautiful Bizarre Magazine’s 16th international curated exhibition, and our 4th in partnership with prestigious New York gallery, Haven Gallery. This exhibition brings together over 80 incredible local American and international artists, including the Winners of the 2023 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize. Each exploring the Serendipity theme through the lens of their unique lived experience and artistic styles. While at the same time bringing the pages of Beautiful Bizarre Magazine to life!

Serendipity is the way to make discoveries, by accident but also by sagacity, of things one is not in quest of. Based on experience, knowledge, it is the creative exploitation of the unforeseen.

It is often said that art imitates life, and just like life, art can surprise and delight us in unexpected ways. Serendipitous moments can provide artists with inspiration, influence their creative process, and even shape the final outcome of their work into something beautiful, bizarre, and remarkably unique.

Serendipity is the spark that ignites inspiration.
